Product Details

Product name "Baby Town" Pacifiers
Description The recalled pacifiers were sold in a 4-pack of assorted colors. "Baby Town" and model #39864 are written on the product's packaging. 
Problem These pacifiers fail to meet the federal safety standards for pacifiers. The pacifer shield is too small and could easily enter the mouth of an infant. Also, the ventilation holes are too small and not placed to allow for insertion of a toll to remove the pacifier when lodged in the mouth of a child. Finally, the package fails to display the required warning instruction consumers not to tie a pacifier around a child's neck, which would present a strangulation hazard. 
Distribution Dollar stores nationwide. 
Company Shims Bargain - 866-540-3334. 
Dates sold March 2004 through December 2007. 
Date posted 01/11/2008
